The family members that were arrested for loitering on their own front lawn were charged, arrested, booked, and released one day; then, on the day they were released from jail, they were arrested AGAIN BY THE SAME OFFICER for loitering on their private property! The arresting officer is clearly ignorant, biased, malicious, and racist.

You can’t arrest people for doing the things they do in their daily lives in spaces where what they’re doing is appropriate. The history of loitering and vagrancy laws in the United States is very closely linked to racial regulation and oppression, and to the shoring up of Jim Crow laws in the South and the shoring up of racial segregation and hierarchy in the rest of the country as well.

In 2012, the township already struck down the unlawful and downright unconstitutional loitering ordinance.

The arresting officer should be fired and the family should be heavily compensated.

Re: So Loitering.....AT YOUR OWN HOME!?!?

I was trying to think of something stupid and witty to say about cops being cops, but I just kept making the same face Jackie Chan is in that smiley. Do people think this a recent trend or is it just getting more media attention at this time?

"Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for... it's all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can't you see the funny side? Why aren't you laughing?"

This is so messed up. Can't they ask for proof of residency? Twice? How did weapons get drawn in a loitering dispute to get people tased?

And this might be the wrong thing to notice but is the reporter standing in front of a green screen? Background of the police station seems off.

This was my exact thought. That silver lining.

I hope the judge that rules on this isn't a racist too.

Re: So Loitering.....AT YOUR OWN HOME!?!?

I have to admit that there are times when I've chosen to stay at home and not go out in public because of the constant harassment of minorities I read about. I mean, statistically speaking something bad isn't likely to happen to me, but it very nearly did.

I was at Subway last week grabbing dinner. Walked in and there was a cop grabbing his dinner too. I was in there 5 or so minutes longer than him but he waited in the parking lot till I pulled out. Then he pulls out behind me and drives right behind me all the way to my house. Slows down as I pull into my drive-way and just really slowly drives by as I'm walking in the house. I've been profiled several other times as well and my wife realized for the first time what it's like to be treated differently now that we're in an interracial marriage. Her experience growing up white was very different and a few people have treated her differently because we're together now.

Not sure what his intent was, but making sure I got home safe and sound with a police escort was definitely not his purpose. These are intimidation tactics that I hear about constantly from minorities in this society. It keeps people shaken at their core. Harassment of one family like this basically sends a message to the entire community. Profiling one person tells everyone of the shared group that they're not welcome or wanted.

I talk to a lot of white people and those who haven't grown up outside of the "typical" white suburban experience (the ones that were of the poorest classes who ended up in more diverse communities i.e.), you never hear stories of harassment. They don't relate. They grew up meeting these cops at their dad's BBQ's, .. not cops who came to break up the BBQ and wonder why they're "disturbing the peace".
